Sensational Italian actress and artist Nicole Vukov has been making waves across the theatrical world with her enthralling gift of performance. Originally based in New York, Nicole’s ambitious strivings and relentless work effort have led to a career with no national boundaries. The international diva and leading lady has spread her wings to incorporate not only theatre but film and television into her portfolio as an actress. Recently, I had the honor of chatting with Nicole and gained some insights about her work and the art of acting in itself. I am sure that you will enjoy what she has to say and her life’s perspective.
Warlock Asylum: Before we begin, I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions and share some of your insights about life and your art. However, for many of our readers who may not be familiar with your persona, please introduce yourself.
Nicole Vukov: Thank you so much for having me. My name is Nicole Vokov. I’m an Italian actress living out my dreams in New York City. Currently, I live in London working as an actress in a tv series that’s almost complete. I cannot say much about the project at this time. However, it is a work of art that has been long in the making and I’m extremely proud of it.
Warlock Asylum: How did you get involved in acting?
Nicole Vukov: Well, I got started at the age of eighteen when I auditioned for the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I got accepted in their prestigious two-year conservatory program. Since this time, it feels as if my dreams are becoming a reality.
Warlock Asylum: What are some of the challenges that you have faced in pursuit of a career in acting and just perfecting the art itself?
Nicole Vukov: Definitely the fact that you just need to be truthful to whatever character you are portraying. Not everyone is going to like you and that’s ok if you are truthful and honest even in the worst of situations that is the best you can do.
Warlock Asylum: Wise words indeed. Recently, you had a big role in the show titled Three Eyes on Pinocchio, which was organized by the Italytime Cultural Center. Can you share some information about this exciting production and your role in it?
Nicole Vukov: Yes, I’m really excited to talk about it! I played the role of the serpent which is the starring role of the show. I had the best time playing it. I had the best time participating in this modern version of a legendary fairytale. My role had many pivotal moments in the show that made it such a valued experience.
Warlock Asylum: Aside from your main role as the serpent in the story, you also had the responsibility of narrating the entire story. What was it like to work as both an actor and as a narrator in the show?
Nicole Vukov: That was definitely the most challenging and favorite part of working in the show, As the narrator of the show, I had the opportunity to break the fourth wall and interact with the audience and that was just electric. The audience gave me the energy to keep the momentum on the story going as the serpent.
Warlock Asylum: How did you enjoy working with other talented actors and artists that were involved in the show? Did you get a chance to interact with the legendary writer Dacia Maraini also?
Nicole Vukov: It was a blessing! All the actors and artists involved were lovely, professional, and full of energy. Having the honor to interact with Dacia Maraini and being able to bring her vision to life was the most exciting experience of my acting career.
Warlock Asylum: Is there anything that you learned while working on Three Eyes on Pinocchio that has affected your theatrical career?
Nicole Vukov: It definitely brought back the childlike quality of being an actor. And having that quality alive in you is the best thing that an actor can do.
Warlock Asylum: How has your work in the field of acting changed since performing in Three Eyes on Pinocchio? Any final thoughts?
Nicole Vukov: The experience has certainly broadened my horizons. My career has definitely taken off after the exposure this show has given me.
